Flowers are more than nature’s splash of color. The blossoms play key roles to moments where memories are made: The young man placing a corsage on his prom date’s wrist; women lined up on the dance floor to catch the bouquet at a wedding; a beautiful arrangement showing up to the office for a birthday, Valentine’s Day or just to say “I love you.”
People often say the kitchen is the heart of the home, and the kitchen of Tim and Connie Tipton of Tipton Equipment and Kitchen Store is no exception.
“The minute I walked into the kitchen, I knew immediately that I had to cook here,” Connie said.
The kitchen has a mix of greenish-sage walls paired with exposed brick, black accents, antiqued cabinets and granite counter tops.
“All these textures give the room depth and personality,” Connie said.

Local photographer Lance Johnston, who has dabbled before in historic renovation, has recently completed a project at Faulkner Street in Conway.
The “Faulkner Flats” are four historically renovated apartments in the redbrick two-story building at 915 Faulkner St.
Johnston purchased the property in 2011 for just less than $150,000 with the idea to strip it down to the now-popular shiplap and wooden floors, perform other renovations and install modern fixtures in order to market the downtown building to young professionals interested in urban and downtown living.
